Next steps were to complete the scaffolding with planking and workers and add some carpenters to the decks.
The planks used for the scaffolding were band sawed from small branches found around town. I also made up some ladders for the workmen to use in various ways, on the scaffolding as well as the hull.
There are carpenters working on planking the hull and men walking up the scaffolding to work on deck.
With the addition of a case and some lighting, the model was pretty much complete. I think that surrounding a model with a glass case is perhaps the only way to keep the modeler’s hands off it!
There are more detail pictures of the shipyard diorama on the Constitution Page.
